Publisher's Summary

Secrets and lies...at Nantucket's most exclusive and glamorous, family-owned hotel.

The Whitley is Nantucket's most exclusive waterfront hotel - a sprawling collection of pristine white cottages and an elegant main building on a long stretch of private white sandy beach. It's a family owned business - brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, all work there in various capacities.

Paula is happy in her back-office accounting position. But changes are in store when her grandfather promotes her and fires her cousin - who then blames Paula.

Meanwhile, a blond romantic-comedy superstar is hiding out at the hotel for a few months. She meets Paula's brother, a chef - who has no idea who she is - and she likes it that way.

Paula's grandfather also hires a consultant to help her settle into her new role. But she isn't sure what to think of David, who grew up on Nantucket but now lives in Manhattan. 

He's a brilliant consultant and will be assessing Paula's suitability for the role. He's also home for another reason, a difficult family issue that makes Manhattan seem very far away. 

A new family saga from the Wall Street Journal and USA Today best-selling author of The Nantucket Inn and The Restaurant.

The Best Yet

This book tape was by far the best one we have listened too. You will certainly receive a lift after enduring a period of so much stress and turmoil in our world. Seeing how others were able to find hope in situations they face.

Not a favorite

This book did not hold my interest the way the Nantucket series did. I found it difficult to care about the characters. It felt a little bland for me. Not sure if it was a performance issue or not. I think I’m too used to Karissa Vacker whom I like a lot. That said, by the end of the book, I did become a little more interested in Paula and David and would read a sequel if there was one.

Don’t bother

Shallow plot and mostly a restaurant tour of Nantucket. Unless this book was self published I’m not sure how it made it to the stands. Bottom line … a waste of time and money.

Realistic

A story that could be realistic, enjoyable story. Just enough drama to keep you involved. The narrator did a good job - it was a bit had to follow along as the voices don’t really change much between characters. I have listened to this a couple times before reviewing.
I would listen again.

HO hum.

This story could have been so good. The setting and characters were fine but nothing happened! I waited and waited for something memorable, but there was no plot, no intrigue, nothing but blahhhh. Sorry

Audio skips

I enjoyed the book, unfortunately the audio skipped often.
My other issue is that it was very hard to tell the female voices from the male voices.
